About Riley

I am a professional producer and guitarist with 20+ years of experience recording, playing and teaching. I have a passion for music -- especially the guitar -- and love to pass on my excitement and knowledge to others.

Available to teach students of all ages and levels of proficiency in guitar, music theory and production. I want to teach students what THEY want to learn and always looking for the best personalized method for the individual.

I am equally comfortable teaching on both ACOUSTIC and ELECTRIC guitar. I specialize in showing students on electric guitar how to use amps, effects and recording techniques. I also work out of a commercial recording studio in Brooklyn where students can take lessons and earn free recording time by building up lesson hours.

I have been playing professionally for over two decades with lots of experience touring and recording in studios. I've performed live on national TV/radio and had my music appear on HBO, PBS, NPR, Netflix, DirecTV, and national TV commercials in the US and UK.

I am well versed in Music Theory, Composition, Arranging, and Production. I've produced and played on hundreds of recordings and currently own and operate a professional recording studio.

My experience and skill on the guitar coupled with the ability to listen to what a student wants and needs makes me a unique and valuable teacher. Let's talk and figure out how I can help you be the best guitarist you can be.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Music

I've been working as a professional composer, producer and musician since 1996.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for over 20 years and am well versed in many styles and sounds. I have performed live consistently since the 90's and have credits as a guitarist on hundreds of recorded songs.

Music Production

I have worked as a professional producer and engineer since 2000. In this time, I've worked on hundreds of recordings from a wide spectrum of artists in many distinctive styles and featuring a huge array of instruments - including drums, electric bass, upright bass, electric and acoustic guitars, cello, violin, sax, trumpet, clarinet, piano, and vocals just to name a few.

Music Theory

I have been a musician and music producer for over twenty years. I have performed as a guitarist internationally, composed music for film/tv, produced recordings for hundreds of songwriters and bands and taught guitar to students of various ages and skill levels.

I am well versed in music harmony and theory and apply it in my daily professional life through composition, music production, live performance and as a guitar tutor.
